Testing Testing … 123 (Software Testing that is)

There’s a new meetup in town which is joining us on our Workshop Wednesdays:

Software Testing Online

Women who want to learn the concept of Software Testing

Looking for a career in Technology but unsure of what path to take, want a insight to testing and how it plays an important part in software development.

Women who are either returning back to work, looking for a career change or just want to learn something new.

We will go through the basic concept of testing, types of testing, identifying defects and usability issues and how they can impact your business.

We announced the next sessions on our post here but as a quick reminder for you all the next one will be on the 3rd of June – we made it to June already! The sessions will be:
